Birthday Family Day
On 30 May we turn 256! To celebrate our big day, we’re throwing a giant birthday party and we want you to come.
Our birthday party will be jam-packed with creative and hands-on activities for all the family, with space to explore our historic theatre in a fun and informal setting.

As a treat for younger visitors, we've prepared some delicious lunch packs to keep hunger at bay during your visit to Bristol Old Vic's Family Day!
For just £4.50, you can pick up a bag including: a sandwich, a clementine, gingerbread, juice, and a box of crayons - as well as a bag of veg crisps to share. Just purchase from the bar when you arrive!
Join us for an all-singing adventure! Our experienced choir leaders will weave together theatre and music in a fun and interactive workshop for all ages.
Did you know an elephant once performed on our stage? Or that we have our own theatre ghost?
Discover our amazing auditorium and get to know some of the people who have called it home over the last 256 years.
Our tour guides will expertly weave myth, fact and Bristolian folklore into a thrilling and informative experience for all the family.
Join us for interactive storytelling workshops perfect for little ones.
Our fantastic story makers will take children on a magical journey. By the end of the workshop, we will have created and performed a brand-new story together.
Note: If you don't manage to book in advance, there may still be spaces available for these activities on the day - ask at the Box Office when you arrive!
